Forester Ueenand hatch their own outrageous military plan Originally published in 1935 The African ueen is a tale replete with vintage Forester drama unrelenting suspense reckless heroism impromptu military manoeuvres near death experiences and a good old fashioned love story to boot. 710 The launch hardly seemed worthy of her grandilouent name of African ueen She was suat flat bottomed and thirty feet long Her paint was peeling off her and she reeked of decay A tattered awning roofed in six feet of the stern amidships stood the engine and boiler with the stumpy funnel reaching up just higher than the awning Two people are thrown together into this derelict boat by the fortunes of war It is 1914 and the events in Europe are echoed in the middle of Africa as the German colonists on the East coast mobilize to oppose the Allies Belgian and English on the West Rose and Allnutt are both English but even they are engaged in a private little war of domination they come from different backgrounds at a time where class differences were the defining element of the British social structure Rose is a middle aged spinster from a reasonably wealthy background doing missionary work with her dominating elderly brother Allnutt is an upstart Cockney drifter who sailed the high seas as a stoker until he landed a realtively safe job as a currier on the Ulanga river based on his nautical and mechanical experience Gender politics also come into play in the duel of wills between Rose and Allnutt He wants to stay out of trouble she wants to do a grand gesture striking at the Germans who destroyed her cosy household with her brother at the same time affirming and validating her new found independence So the two imcompatible partners set out to descend the Ulanga River and attack a much stronger German gunship Konigin Louise guarding the access to West Africa As we have come to expect from romantic comedies the initial repulsion will turn into something passionate as the couple spend time together and get to know each otherThe story should be familiar to most of us from the famous Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn movie directed by John Huston I believe the movie is almost flawless due to the genius of the two leads to inhabit their characters and to transmit their passion to the viewers something the book only partially manages through unconvincing psychological speculations and a heavy dose a patriotic fervor Yet the book has its merits and I would recommend giving it a try even for those who like me have seen the movie about a dozen times There could be no monotony on the river with its snags and mud bars its bends and its backwaters its eddies and its swirls Perhaps those few days of active happiness were sufficient recompense to Rose for thirty three years of passive misery C S Forester is clearly better at writing nautical adventures than at exploring character motivations and the highpoint of the book is the perilous journey on the Ulanga river depicted in vivid detail especially when it comes to riding the white water cataracts and the gruelling traverse of the delta labyrinth An added bonus for me was to discover some technical engineering passages I actually work in pumps turbines compressors repairs and the details on improvised repairs on the African ueen Under the urgings of necessity and with the stimulus given him by Rose s confiding faith in his ability Allnutt devised all sorts of ways of dealing with that boiler tube it might be almost be said that he reinvented some of his processess A significant difference between the book and the movie can be found in the conclusion with Hollywood going for a safe conventional tryumph of love and courage and Forester preferring a subtle ambiguous resolution Actually the book ending compensates for the overt nationalistic claims in earlier passages If English explorers had turned back at the sight of apparent impossibilities the British Empire would not be nearly its present size I was tempted to laugh when the author not only turned introvert shy Rose into a white water master pilot overnight but later compared her to Napoleon and Nelson in her efforts to strike a blow at the German foes Yet both Allnutt and Rose end up as fallible credible and dissillusioned people with even their passion probably insufficient to steer them into a safe harbour And I liked them better for it than in the above mentioned Hollywood cliche Forester himself chooses to ualify his shaky psychological speculations towards he end of the story accepting both the inscrutable in human motivations and the hollowness of the patriotic fever Perhaps no one can really understand the state of mind of a man who volunteers in war for duty that may lead to death but that such volunteers are always forthcoming has been proved by too many pitiful events in history Conclusion check out both movie and book they complete each other The Tentacle Monster Everyone Wanted drama
